This development reflects the tight-knit community feel of the local town. Many of the apartments have their own balconies and a homely communal lounge is at the developments' heart, where residents can socialise over a cup of tea or a G&T! What’s more, with beautifully landscaped gardens, the development offers a peaceful space to enjoy a spot of fresh air on a sunny day, along with the stunning roof terrace with 360 degree views of Abergavenny and the surrounding beautiful countryside.
The development’s dedicated House Manager takes care of the day-to-day running and organises social events for residents to take part in, if they wish. There’s a 24-hour call system, in case of emergencies, as well as a camera entry system, ensuring you’ll feel completely safe and secure in your new home. Plus, with lifts to all floors, you won’t have any problems getting around.
The development is superbly located. Its just a 3-minute walk from Abergavenny High Street, offering everything you could possibly need, from Waitrose and other supermarkets, shops and eateries to transport (both the railway and bus stations are just a mile from the site) and health facilities (there’s a doctor’s surgery right next door). This Welsh borders location also means you’ll have easy access to London, Bristol, Cardiff and the Midlands, if you’re looking to travel further afield, with the onsite car parking to make journeys even easier.

What is an Assured Tenancy?
Assured Tenancy means that you agree to rent the property for a minimum term of 12 months, but after that you can leave at any time as long as you give two months written notice. We can’t ask you to leave unless you have broken the terms of the agreement.
I want to rent. What checks do you carry out and what do I need to prepare?
We’ll ask you to complete a Rental Application Pack and an Income and Expenditure form to get the information we need to do standard background checks. You’ll be asked for proof of income, savings and/or pensions, along with copies of your last three months’ bank statements. You’ll be asked to provide identification documentation that complies with the latest Government Right to Rent regulations – our sales consultants will talk you through what you need.
Do I need to pay a reservation deposit?
Yes, you will need to pay a small refundable reservation deposit to reserve the property. You will also have to pay a security deposit equivalent to five weeks rent when you move in.
What do I have to pay before moving in?
Before you can move into your property, you will need to pay the first month’s rent together with your security deposit, minus the reservation deposit you’ve already paid.
The security deposit is equivalent to five weeks rent. Don’t worry, we’ll make sure you know the exact amount you need to pay in plenty of time.

Living at Abergavenny
Living in Abergavenny
Its historic market lies at the heart of the town. Here, as well as a general market held several days a week, flea markets, craft fairs, antiques fairs and artisan markets are held regularly.
In the town you'll also find the small yet beautiful Abergavenny Castle. In the grounds of this Norman ruin is a delightful museum telling the story of this market town, from its prehistory to the modern day.
Abergavenny is also a walker's paradise. The Brecon Beacons serve as a dramatic backdrop to the town, offering 520 square miles of gentle ambling walks, mountain trails and limestone caves, interspersed with quaint Welsh towns, country pubs and Michelin-star restaurants. The Brecon Beacons are also home to South Wales' highest mountain, Pen y Fan. What's more, to the north of the town lie the Black Mountains. These grassy red sandstone hills dappled with heather and intersected by meandering rivers offer excellent opportunities for walkers, cyclists, mountain bikers and horse riders alike.
And in the nearby town of Blaenafon is the Big Pit National Coal Museum. Visit this fascinating award-winning museum for a taster of what being a miner here was like. Take the underground tour, descending 300 feet below the surface, to follow in the footsteps of miners past and learn more about the coal industry in Wales.
